Now and Then (Times of Your Life)

When I read the prompt at Sunday Scribbling (now and then) I immediately thought of this song "Times Of Your Life" by Paul Anka. I thought I'd post the lyrics for those who are not familiar with it. Then I found a video too so I'm putting it here too:

Good morning, yesterday
You wake up and time has slipped away
And suddenly it's hard to find
The memories you left behind
Remember, do you remember

The laughter and the tears
The shadows of misty yesteryears
The good times and the bad you've seen
And all the others in between
Remember, do you remember
The times of your life (do you remember)

Reach back for the joy and the sorrow
Put them away in your mind
The mem'ries are time that you borrow
To spend when you get to tomorrow

Here comes the saddest part (comes the saddest part)
The seasons are passing one by one
So gather moments while you may
Collect the dreams you dream today
Remember, will you remember
The times of your life

Gather moments while you may
Collect the dreams you dream today
Remember, will you remember
The times of your life
Of your life
Of your life

I know this is not much of a Scribbling... but this song evokes so much "Now and Then" memories; memories from my childhood...warm memories in high school and so on...

NOW and THEN... that prompt also made me think of TOMORROW. 2008 is fast approaching and I need to make some goals for that year. I had a THEN that good, now is BETTER, and hoping that next year is EVEN BETTER.

Thanks for posting the lyrics. I never seem to get as much out of a song if I can't read the words. Mostly I just know the chorus. This made me nostalgic!

One of my favorite songs! What a fitting way to put here for this week's theme of then and now.

Very nostalgia inducing song! I would suggest that as well as putting together a list of goals for 2008, you should also put together a list of accomplishments for 2007. I have recently started doing this myself and found it useful. Happy New Year! :)
